In Fraud We Trust! The Live-Action Sitcom The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays. Continues through June 4 2015

In this satire of Chicago corruption from Off-Color Comedy, Drew, a volunteer serving in Africa, has an onscreen meltdown that goes viral; after losing his post he moves back to Chicago, where he acquires a job in the city clerk's office. A five-part series offering an episode per week, In Fraud We Trust serves as a satire of TV sitcoms as well, reeling in all the standard elements. The night I attended, the show had its amusing moments—especially a perfectly hammed-up shootout enacted as a slow-mo dream sequence. —Zara Yost
